Since This is My Earth started saving lands in danger in 2016, the list of species and animals that have since been protected has not stopped growing.

The international motto chosen for Biodiversity Day 2022 is
饾棔饾槀饾椂饾椆饾棻饾椂饾椈饾棿 饾棶 饾棪饾椀饾棶饾椏饾棽饾棻 饾棛饾椉饾椏 饾棓饾椆饾椆 饾棢饾椂饾棾饾棽, and its objective is to promote the idea that we are all part of the same context and form a balance.

May 22, 2022, moreover, comes at a time when levels of uncertainty are growing regarding new health hazards arising from the increase in cases of new infectious diseases. Virus mutations that pass from animals to humans directly result from the imbalances generated by climate change and the overexploitation of the planet’s natural resources.

In the weekly summary published by the magazine Nature: Spillover threats, Moon quest 鈥 the week in infographics, the concern of the scientific community is shared about the increase in diseases that have passed from animals to humans since 1918 and that, in some cases, have led to epidemic or even pandemic situations (such as with COVID19).

From This is My Earth, we want to unite and vindicate the global scientific trend that defends that the fact of protecting biodiversity is not only an act of passive generosity or of responsibility towards the rest of the world’s species and habitats but must be used as part of an active strategy for better health for all (including humans) and a weapon to slow down the effects of climate change: In short, more biodiversity, less disease, more protected environments, less extreme effects derived from of climate change.

Below is the list of species that we have saved since 2016. They are wild animals, and they are allies to improve your health, your quality of life, your children’s future and your community’s well-being, and that of the planet.
